5 Places To Celebrate New Year’s Eve In Delhi

Just when we begin to think that the darkest days of the pandemic are behind us, the virus mutates and comes back with a completely alien strain. Yet again, coronavirus has put a damper on our year-end plans. With the cases rising, it is best to step out with caution. Double mask if you need too, carry your own bottle of sanitiser if you can, but at no point can you afford to show any negligence. Delhi Government has issued orders of night curfew in the capital, due to which restaurants will be operating only until 10 p.m with capped capacity. We handpicked some restaurants that are not only following the safety protocols but are also offering lucrative deals on food and liquor to make sure you end your year with a bang. Here goes:
